AbstractIn 2000, the Institute for Research in Construction, National Research Council Canada (IRC/NRC) launched the second phase of the Material Emissions and Indoor Air Quality Modelling project (CMEIAQ-II). The second phase of this project is the direct result of the support and suggestions from the first phase's consortium members for continued work on this research topic. In the second phase, the research is directed towards two principal objectives. The first is to develop the knowledge and tools needed to estimate concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) generated by the emissions from building materials and furnishings in order to gain a better understanding of the effects of those products on indoor air quality (IAQ). The second is to provide the scientific bases needed to enhance indoor air quality guidelines for office and residential buildings. An important addition to the project in this phase was the Health and End Users Advisory Committee, which was tasked to provide much needed input from the health sector and advice to help tailor the project outputs to better meet the needs of end-users.
